a year ago when the Vampire Diaries started and was

and Ian portrays him so well-- no one could play
Damon better than Ian, that's for sure!

Since reading the first Vampire Diaries book and Damon Salvatore
stepped out of the dark shadows, I was sold. This mystery guy with
the witty/snarky lines really had me like a ring on his finger. He is
funny, darkly sarcastic, intelligent, bright and so charming. He is
my favorite character in the books and his lines are the
best ones. And this brings me to the Damon we see on the
show. I love him to bits and pieces. All his flaws and ruthlessness
he uses to hide his humanity and his broken heart makes him
all the more irresistible, deep and complex
. And it's no
surprise when I tell you that he is my favorite
character on the show as well.

Ian Somerhalder is now one of my absolute favorite
actors. And no, it's not only because of his amazing good
looks and his blue piercing eyes that can make any woman
melt within a second of that look. He has shown that he is a
fantastic actor, not only on TVD, but also on Lost. He is the
perfect actor for the part of Damon. He just captures every aspect
of him and makes him come alive
. His facial expressions are
priceless and the acting is brilliant. Other than that, I
heard that Ian is the sweetest person you could ever meet, and he
really looks like it, in interviews and videos of him etc. Other
than all that, I love the fact that Ian is so dedicated to
charity work for the environment and to help animals
and I cant wait to see more of him.
- MissDK (Lala)

Ian Somerhalder had been one of my most favourite actors
in the world. 1) He’s a versatile actor. Give him a script and the
character is his. 2) He’s a humanitarian. His heart is made of
gold, just ask the people who he had helped whether it’s raising
awareness
or helping calamity-stricken people. 3) He’s very humble.
He’s been in the industry for years, made movies and show
alongside Hollywood icons; though he still holds the
same sweet smile every time he meets a fan.

Damon Salvatore’s mysteries draw me in. After reading the books, I have
come to mind that Damon will always be my one tragic hero who immediately
got hold of my heart
. He’s the most interesting character in
The Vampire Diaries and I love watching every single things that unfolds for us.

Ian is Damon for me; and no one else. No one
can play Damon as grand as Ian does.

Damon S a l v a t o r e


I think what surprised the hell out of Damon is he started to find
himself caring about things, some of the people and this place
and that is a weird notion for him. It puts him into this protective
mode
and he goes to work and he's literally fighting for [something
other than himself]
. It's a different Damon. - Ian on Damon

I’m president of the T e a m Damon fan club. - Paul Wesley

I adore Ian because he is a beautiful man inside and out.
Not only is he gorgeous with a great smile and amazing eyes, but he
has one of the best personalities I have ever seen from a celebrity.
He seems so easy going and genuine and he's always so nice
to his fans and fellow co stars. He has a huge heart and is
constantly aware of world issues. He seems like hes
always trying to help people and he just has this charisma.

Damon is my favorite character as well because Ian does such a
great job with the character. He is absolutely hilarious, and even
though Damon is supposed to be a "bad guy" on the
show, you can tell that there is more to him. You can see
his struggle with good and evil and its clear that he has a heart
and that he cares about people deep down. It's fun to see
his growth on the show, and he keeps things interesting.

- quin611 (Quin)

What can I say about Damon Salvatore? Well, let me first say that
when I opened the book five years ago, I was expecting to fall for
another, but the moment Damon came into the scene, he won me over
and I melted
. In the books he's this dark, 'evil' character. But
something about him draws you in and I just fell for him. Eventually he was
the reason for me to finish reading, in fact when I first heard that
the show was going to be on TV the first person I looked up
was Damon, and let me say, I wasn't disappointed by what I saw.

I knew Ian from Lost. I knew his character was long past and I knew
he had the most beautiful eyes I'd ever seen. That was enough for me.
As the episodes past though, my love for Damon grew and
grew and it's not slowing down. Ian has proven to be the best choice
for Damon and I couldn't be happier. Damon's the one character who takes
you outside your comfort level on the regular basis but yet makes you
want to hug in the next episode
! He's everything a character
should be. He's hilarious and charming and sweet and concerned. He just
makes the show what it is. To put it simply, without Damon, the show
is nothing in my opinion and I am proud to say I love him to death!

Ian is so gorgeous and sweet and open, he makes you feel good about yourself.
I respect him as an actor, I think he’s so good. - Kayla Ewell

We had this one little girl go up to him, and she was really shy, and
her mom was like, 'She has something to tell you.' And Ian leaned over
and was like, 'What is it, s w e e t h e a r t?', and the little girl
says, 'Try to be a good boy.' And he was like, 'Okay,
sweetie…for you I'll try
.' - Nina Dobrev

Ian Somerhalder simply o w n e d this role, having a blast with
Damon’s snarky, sarcastic side – but deftly transitioning to serious
and vulnerable when called for. Emmy voters will never
even look at a CW show, but they should make an exception in this case.- TV Fanatic
Ian Somerhalder is like an enigma. You really don't expect someone
that looks that gorgeous and who is super charming to also be the
sweetest guy ever with a huge heart but Ian is all that and more.
He cares about people, animals and the world's well being in general.
He's the kind of guy that will take a picture and sign an
autograph for every single fan. In addition, he's immensely
talented and really encompasses the personality of every character he plays.

Ian has made the character of Damon Salvatore truly come to life.
Damon is my favorite on the show (and the books) because he's
funny, smart, confident, complex and protects the people that he
cares about. To me, he's not the villain of the story and
I agree when Ian says "Damon has ill intentions but for righteous
reasons"
. He believes that his actions are justified and most
of the time, he makes the viewers believe that too and sympathize
with him. That goes to show how great Ian's acting is and how
complicated the character of Damon is. Without Damon, the
show wouldn't be the same!
- naturellebella (Kem)
I'm a huge fan of Ian since the Lost days, so when I found out that he was gonna be
in a tv series called Vampire Diaries, I was so excited. Because of that, I searched
for the books. And my excitement was doubled because upon finishing the vd
books, I'm soooo in love with Damon Salvatore! He has the mystery, the charm and
the enigma that is just so hard to resist
! You become a slave to his
character - his loyalty, and his love for his brother and for Elena. Damon's inner
struggle and journey to find his humanity is so appealing, that you want to be a
part of it every single step of the way. He's a character you will never get tired
of reading and watching. And I'm glad that Ian lived up to the expectation. There's
not an ounce of disappointment in Ian's portrayal of Damon
. From 'Hello Brother,' to him
touching his lips in the finale, each and every scene of Ian as Damon exudes
intensity, powerful acting and flawless delivery! I can't think of anyone else who
can play Damon as engaging as Ian does. Ian can be funny, sexy, and sweet; or tormented
and hurt the next second - he plays all those emotions amazingly! Ian Somerhalder
equals Damon Salvatore, and Damon Salvatore equals Ian Somerhalder!
- Weena
There are few people whose aura is so pure and positive that you can't
help but be mesmerized by them and Ian is one of those people.
His charm is not in his –quite unmatched- great looks, but in his inner
beauty, in his character. Added to that the fact that he is an
intelligent and intellectual person, and you have perfection.
The popularity and love Damon has gained as a character owes
a lot to that perfection. Damon is certainly a well-written character with
lots of great one-liners, depth and complexity
but it is Ian who makes it all come alive on the screen
.
There is an obvious connection between him and Damon, he loves the
character and truly understands and feels him which, in turn, makes
his portrayal of the character very heartfelt, real and honest.
The incredible job Ian does in his portrayal of
Damon allows the audience to see more than the ‘cool charismatic
snarky funny vampire’ in him, rather they are privy to Damon’s
many layers, feelings and thoughts and are able to connect to him.
Damon is one of top fictional vampires ever written as simply a bad-ass
vampire to dread and respect, and yet Ian also manages to make him feel
human and real, which is no small feat and is testimony to Ian’s talent
as an actor
. It’s also why it is unfathomable to think anyone else
portraying Damon, the writing would be same but the feeling just
wouldn’t as no one could do justice to the
character the way Ian does.

The Camaro, Damon's baby!! I laughed so much int hat scene, I was expecting him to kneel and kiss it at one point

And don't let me start when he was making noises... a 176-years-old vampire becoming a kid again bc of his car, typical man!!

He had his baby back, he didn't want anyone to ruin the moment

TBH it's the only moment I enjoyed of Damon in the last episode, found him a bit "weak" in the other scenes, he let Kai take advantage of him a bit too easily in my opinion I was expecting more

Now I'm curious, he seems to enter in the real action to go back, I'm excited!

Damon and his Camaro was my favorite part of the episode When he comes back to life he needs to rebuild it.

mr. “im fabulous and i know it”

He really should re-build it, IDK how, but he has to!! Or maybe he can bring it back with him in the real world

He's such a child. First playing with his car and then with the paper planes

His car is ready and waiting Now he just needs to get back.

Ahahah, the airplanes thing was just so funny, he's an idiot!!

OK, let me contain the surprise to discover Damon was again the murder of the moment!! Writers really have no fantasy anymore in this, whoever died/dies/will die, we don't even have to question who the murder will turn out to be

Even if I was expecting this, I remembered the pilot and I was sure he had done something terrible in 1994 with Stefan And this was not excusable at all, very horrible of him!! But I liked the contrast with present!Damon, it showed the huge steps ahead he made in the last years, how much he changed and became more mature, he feel sorry now in a genuine way, and it's not the first time he's showing this, he's such an amazing and complex character, love his journey through years
